Public Notification: Summer Food Service Program Waiver Requests

The Rhode Island Department of Education plans on submitting a waiver request to extend current flexibilities in place that relieve certain regulatory requirements of the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) during the national health emergency caused by COVID-19:

  • SFSP – Non-Congregate Feeding: This waiver would extend the current flexibilities in place that allow for meals served under the SFSP to be taken off-site for consumption at a later time. 
  • SFSP – Parent Pick-Up: This waiver would extend the current flexibilities in place that allow parents to pick up SFSP meals on behalf of their children, without the child present. 

The goal of these waivers is to lessen the impact that COVID-19 has on our community. If granted, these waivers will give children across the state continued access to nutritious meals throughout the summer months.   

For more information on the program, call the Rhode Island Department of Education, Office of Statewide Efficiencies, Child Nutrition Programs at (401) 222-4253 or (401) 222-8936.
